As a pet owner, you want the best possible care for your pet.

In addition to offering pet owners free access to PSI's Official Pet Sitter Locator, we also want to ensure you have the information you need to choose a professional pet sitter that is right for you and your pets.

Learn more about pet sitting as a career.

The vast majority of PSI pet sitters are pet owners themselves. If you've ever considered pursuing a career as a professional pet sitter or dog walker, we'd love to answer any questions you may have.


PSI membership gives you access to the tools, information and support that will help you start a pet-sitting business the right way.
